The Team Leader took a call from Cumbria police regarding a dog that had been found and reported as deceased on the fell. As with the recent rescue of Daisy the St Bernard dog, volunteers were asked if they would be happy to help recover the body. As expected, team members were quick to offer their support and six members of the team, including new probationary members went out to compassionately retrieve the dog and take her to a local veterinary practice, so the owner could collect her from there. A very sad situation that is always met with the upmost empathy by the Team and its members.

Incident started at 12:20 and ended at 16:00 making 3.7 hrs in total. There were 6 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 22
